I Will Follow

    I was on the outside, when you said
    You said you needed me.
    I was looking at myself, I was blind
    I could not see.
    
    A boy tries hard to be a man,
    His mother takes him by his hand,
    If he stops to think he starts to cry.
    Oh why?
    
    If you walkaway, walkaway
    I walkaway, walkaway - I will follow.
    
    I was on the inside
    when they pulled the four walls down.
    I was looking through the window.
    I was lost, I am found.
    
    Walkaway, Walkaway.
    I walkaway, walkaway - I will follow.
    If you walkaway, walkaway,
    I walkaway, walkaway - I will follow.
    
    (Your eyes make a circle,
    I see you when I go in there)
    Your eyes, your eyes.
    
    If you walkaway, walkaway
    I walkaway, walkaway - I will follow
    
    I will follow
    I will follow...

Twilight

    I look into his eyes, there are closed
    But I see something.
    A teacher told me why, I laugh
    When old men cry.
    
    My body grows and grows,
    It fightens me you know.
    The old man tried to walk me home.
    I thought he should have known.
    
    Twilight,
    Twilight, lost my way.
    Twilight, night and day.
    Twilight, can't find my way.
    
    (In the shadow boy meets man
    In the shadow boy meets man).
    
    I'm running in the rain.
    I'm caught in a late night play.
    It's all and everything.
    I'm soaking through the skin.
    
    Twilight, darkened day.
    Twilight, lost my way.
    
    
    Twilight, can't find my way.
    
    (In the shadow boy meets man
    In the shadow boy meets man).

An Cat Dubh

    Say goodnight, she waits for me to put out the light.
    Lay there still,
    She waits to break my will.
    Yes, if I know the truth,
    How bout you?
    (She got it)
    
    And in the daylight,
    A blackbird makes a fire inside.
    And when she is done,
    She sleeps beside the night.
    
    Yes, I know the truth,
    How bout you?
    (She got it)

Into The Heart

    Into the heart of a child.
    I stay awhile, I can go back.
    
    Into the heart of a child.
    I can smile.
    I can go there.
    
    Into the heart of a child.
    Into the heart of a child.
    I can go back.
    I can stay awhile.
    Into the heart.

Out Of Control

    Monday morning, it's so boring.
    I say how long, you say how long.
    It was one dull morning,
    Woke the world with falling.
    I was so sad, so sad.
    It was so sad.
    
    I had a feeling it was out of control.
    I had a feeling it was out of control.
    Boys and girls go to school and learn.
    
    
    I had a feeling it was out of control.
    I had a feeling it was out of control.
    Out of control.
    Out of control.
    
    I have full faith, that it was burning.
    And it go, say death.
    It's a charmer, I say a charmer.
    And one day I'll die.
    And the choice will not be mine.
    Will it be too late?
    You can't fight it.
    
    I had a feeling it was out of control.
    I had a feeling it was out of control.

Stories For Boys

    There's a place I go,
    And it is far away.
    There's a TV show, 
    And I can grow.
    Sometimes the hero takes me,
    Sometimes I don't let go.
    
    There's a picture book
    With more than moans and groans.
    There's a comic strip
    That makes me laugh.
    Sometimes I let it take me.
    Sometimes I don't let go,
    I won't let go.

    Stories for boys.
    
    There's a place I go,
    And it is far away.
    There's a radio,
    And I will crawl.
    Sometimes the hero takes me.
    Sometimes I don't let go.

The Ocean

    A picture in grey, Dorian Gray,
    Just me by the sea.
    
    And I felt like a star,
    I thought that the world could go far,
    If they listened to what I said.
    
    The Ocean, the Ocean
    Washes my feet.
    Splashes the soul of my shoes.
    
    When I looked around,
    The world couldn't be found,
    Just me by the sea.

A Day Without Me

    I'm starting a landslide in my ego.
    Look from the outside to the world I left behind.
    I'm dreaming, you're awake.
    If I were sleeping,
    Once I'd say
    A day without me.
    
    What are the feelings I've been feeling?
    What are the feelings to let me out?
    Today's a day without me.
    
    I started a landslide in my ego.
    Look from the outside to the world I left behind,
    To the world I left behind.
    Wipe the eyes from the laughter,
    To the world I left behind.
    Share the tears and the laughter.

Another Time, Another Place

    Bright morning lights
    Wipe the sleep from another day's eyes.
    Turn away from the wall and there's nothing at all.
    make another one afraid.
    It's the open space of my bed.
    I'll be with you now.
    I'll be with you now.
    Real life on a cloud.
    Real life.
    
    Just as I am.
    I have walked with a tear on my arm.
    I have walked with a feeling of never before.
    In my sleep, I discover the one.
    But she rounds with the morning sun.
    I'll be with you now.
    I'll be with you now.
    Real life on a cloud.
    
    Real life.
    
    Another time, another place.
    Real life.
    Another time, another place...

The Electric Co.

    Boy, stupid boy,
    Don't sit at the table
    Till you able to.
    Toy, broken toy.
    Shout, shout, you're inside out.
    If you don't know, the electric co.
    
    Red, running red
    Play for real,
    Talk and feel.
    Hold in your hand.
    You don't shout,
    You still feel guilty.
    If you don't know,
    The electric co.
    
    One, two, three, four
    Why must I hide from myself?
    When I need the crowd.
    Bring on the crowd.
    I love the crowd.
    
    If you don't know, 
    the electric co...

Shadows And Tall Trees

    Back to the cold restless streets at night
    I talk to myself about tomorrow night.
    Walls of white protest, a gravestone in name
    Who is it now? it's always the same.
    
    Who is it now? who calls me inside
    Are the leaves on the trees just a living disguise?
    I walk the sweet rain tragicomedy
    I'll walk home again to the street melody.
    
    But I know oh no
    But I know oh no
    I know
    
    Shadows and tall trees
    Shadows and tall trees
    
    Life through a window, a discoloured pain
    Mrs. Brown's washing is always the same
    I walk the sweet rain tragicomedy
    I'll walk home again to the street melody.
    
    But I know oh no
    But I know oh no
    I know.
    
    (Out there)
    Do you feel in me, anything redeeming,
    Any worthwhile feeling
    Is life like a tightrope? hanging on my ceiling.
    
    But I know oh no
    But I know oh no
    I know
    
    Shadows and Tall Trees ....
